It looks like producers of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are doing anything they can to add drama to the show. RadarOnline is reporting Bravo producers and executives are doing anything they can to lure Brandi Glanville’s nemesis, LeAnn Rimes to join the cast of RHOBH. “Producers have approached LeAnn multiple times about joining the cast and have been pursuing her even harder in recent weeks,” a source tells Radar. “Viewers are fascinated by Brandi, how she’s dealt with her marriage being broken up by LeAnn, and the pain that continues to cause her and her family.”
“Executives at Bravo have told LeAnn that appearing on the show would be a great opportunity for her to get her side of the story out and no longer be seen in a negative light. However, she has continued to shut the offers down, claiming she doesn’t want the added drama in her life, that she has a flourishing music career, and that she just doesn’t need to do a reality television show,” the source explains.
So how does Brandi fell about LeAnn possibly joining the cast? RadarOnline reports, “Brandi is a very smart cookie and recognizes that if LeAnn were to join the cast, the audience would hate her even more. Brandi loves playing the victim and having LeAnn on the show would allow her to continue in that role as the long-suffering, spurned ex-wife,” a source tells the site.
“Brandi wants to become Bravo’s next Lisa Vanderpump or Bethenny Frankel and have her own spin-off show; having LeAnn join the cast will almost cement that desire. Viewers love Brandi and her book has seen a very strong debut,” the insider added. “Brandi isn’t surprised that LeAnn has turned down the offer to be on the show, but she feels that the country singer owes it to her to sign on after breaking up her marriage. Brandi has been adamant that her sons with Eddie Cibrian absolutely wouldn’t be a part of any filming with LeAnn. She would shield them from all of the drama, as she has always done,” the source revealed.
RumorFix reports LeAnn is NOT joining the cast and has never been asked by producers. RHOBH sources tell the site “It’s not going to happen,” and “It was never discussed. She was never contacted.”
